README file for NYC Rent Statistics Map

This repository contains the source data and code to create the map in the file
rent_buildings.html.

To recreate the map, first run the R code in prep_data_for_map.R. This will 
produce a file called nycGP.kml, which is uploaded to this Google Fusion Table:
https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1oDXK4PgSAusMd7buy6bPYKbzBNiXdRxAEeZfDAg.
It will also produce a file called rent.shp, which I loaded into the open source program QGIS (www.qgis.org)
to change the projection to WGS84 and convert to kml format, and uploaded to a second 
Google Fusion Table here: https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1B7ANXGR0ITFnXMto3xI9oXx3hbVjzok-GgB51Hs.

The .html file pulls from the two Google Fusion tables using the Maps API to create the visualization. 

To get the map to display, insert your API key in the src URL (see https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial#api_key).
